Is the scientific law in which it is stated that "all objects fall at the same rate" wrong? Sorry I posted it in the wrong place.

    no, it is not wrong. all objects fall at the same rate (barring the effects of air resistance)

    So. Although feathers fall slower than bricks, it doesn't count. They need to be specific!

    feathers seem to fall slower than bricks because of air resistance if you drop a feather and a brick in a vacuum, they will fall at the same rate.

    I think he means within the gravitational field of the earth in this context.

    isnt the gravitational pull related to distances between centers and masses?

    how far out does the gravitational field of the earth extend?

    i recall some physics test i had taken and the question was asking of something was true (as in true for the most part) and i showed that it was false since it had an exception.

    however far as you like, but it gets progressively weaker as it goes. Just like magnetic fields.
